Stock Image Library/Commissions
The Ray Cox Photography Stock Library is continually expanding and contains a large number of gardening related images, the vast majority of which were shot in Scotland. The library covers most areas of gardening in addition to specialist collections eg. Scottish gardens to visit, gardens in autumn/winter and plants particularly suited to the Scottish climate eg Meconopsis and Trilliums.
Ray is happy to undertake commissions. Rates are negotiable and depend on the particular project. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss a proposal.
We apply strict quality control procedures to all stages of our work - from image capture and editing to packaging and submission of images. All office equipment including scanners, printers and monitors are calibrated. Our digital image management procedures are in line with Guidelines drawn up by the Garden Photographers’ Association of which we are members.
We take our responsibilities towards the environment seriously by eg: using materials efficiently; re-using raw materials eg packaging where practical; minimising electricity consumption; co-ordinating shoot location visits in order to reduce number of car journeys…etc
